With two weeks to go before his DJ-Kicks mix hits stores, Will Saul has let loose with an EP featuring exclusive music produced for his mix. Having put in time as a top-notch A&R and label head helping to break some of the most vital artists in UK house and bass music, it's no surprise that there are some head-turning names contributing music here. Tracks here from Bicep, Jabru featuring Joel Culpepper, and Leon Vynehall, have all built a steady buzz online, and can be expected to be heard on forward-thinking dance floors all summer long. Add to that a key slice of expert funk from Marquis Hawkes, and you have an essential collection of tunes. Will Saul's DJ-Kicks EP can be purchased digitally at Beatport, and on vinyl at Juno. Tracklist: Bicep - "Nova" Jabru feat. Joel Culpepper - "Church" Marquis Hawkes - "Life Struggle" Leon Vynehall - "Time"
